Arsenal transfer rumour round-up – Lucas Moura, Julian Draxler and Adrien Rabiot

The summer window has only recently closed, but that won’t stop the rumour mill from linking Arsenal with possible new additions that could arrive in January.

To start with, Lucas Moura has supposedly been earmarked for a move to the Emirates Stadium should either Alexis or team-mate Mesut Ozil secure moves in the winter window. The Brazilian has found limited opportunities for match-minutes since the arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar this summer, and could well be open to a move.

Another player who has fallen down the pecking order at the Parc Des Princes is Julian Draxler, and he could also be available in the coming months with the French giants looking to recoup some of the agreed fee needed to pay Monaco for Mbappe’s signature. Arsenal have been linked with the German for many years and would be a popular arrival at the Emirates.

We are also claimed to be eyeing a move for another PSG star in Adrien Rabiot. The central midfielder has come on leaps and bounds since making his debut for the club at 17, and is now believed to be a possible January target for us, as well as Tottenham and Inter. We should be the most attractive option of the three, especially with Wenger still in charge, but he may want first-team assurances.

Which of the three would you most like to see in an Arsenal shirt? Which option looks the most likely arrival?

    Can we get all of them? Because they are upgrades to Arsenal’s current players.

    Draxler could be our new Van Persie, because of his physical attributes and skills. He could also operate behind a striker.

    I think Pastore and Di Maria would also be on sale in January. But Arsenal would have to compete with many clubs to get these high profile players.

    1. McLovin says:

      I think Pastore said he’s staying at PSG for the new season, about a month ago.

      But one of Draxler/Lucas is definitely leaving.

    2. I would love any off the 3 we especially need Raboit. A big imposing Defensive Midfielder perfect. Draxler or Moura would be good to all 3 would be perfect

    Just get Rabiot. That is d dude we need to shore up our mid-field . I dnt think draxler wants to come to us either.

  3. Dom says:

    It’s just another wish list.

  4. Quantic Dream says:

    I would like Lucas Moura…he is very skilled with tricky feet and movement..a bit like Cazorla and Sanchez. If he is brought in for Sanchez I’d be quite happy…the problem is Sanchez will leave and Wenger will act like nothing happened.

  5. Nothing changed says:

    How great would it be for Arsenal fans to not have to listen to all the transfer rumors whilst the transfer window is closed. It is painful enough to have to deal with all the rumors whilst the transfer window is open.

  6. Godswill says:

    Leave us alone with these transfer rumours now. Spare us the trauma. You know Arsenal fans don’t too much like transfer windows. It’s like window shopping your dire needs to us.

    Of all the players linked with Arsenal this summer ,Draxler would be my first choice.He has all the attributes required in an attacking midfielder and has the versatility to play effectively wide and in a central position. A very fine player who would be an ideal replacement for Sanches and/or Ozil neither of whom have long term futures at Arsenal.

  8. Bobby says:

    We can do with Rabiot and Draxler as I believe they will greatly increase our option and create competition, this is key to have a good performance week in week our because players like Ozil and Sanchez will understand that their position is no longer guaranteed and they will be playing to retain their starting spot each time they get on the pitch

  9. Vlad says:

    One transfer window just closed, and here we are, already talking about the next one. Can we give it a rest for a little while?
